Low carb menu & the junk of life

- Four eggs
- Two bacon-wrapped cheese-filled hot dogs
- Cinnamon flax muffin

Sometimes, these menus should be filled with all the temptations that I avoided because it seems like such a feat... Eating low-carb never really gets easy. Easier? Yes. Easy? I wouldn't say so.   My then-favorite foods still call to me and I even dream about them.  I even get upset when I see other people eating them... but I have to realize that I *could* certainly eat them, but if I gave into my cravings, then I would be over 300 lbs and very unhealthy, in a ton of pain and not happy in my own skin. Not exactly a choice that I want to make.  So, there's always that.

We have a pizza party for my dad next weekend where everybody is bringing a pizza (crazy idea, I know..) Crap food is everywhere. UGH! Yeah, thanks for listening.

I have to remember, life is not about what you fuel your body with!  There's so much more to it than that. 


  1. I hear your pain, girl! But it doesn't have to be that way! I got tired of giving up my favorite foods too and invented ways that I could still eat my favorite dishes and feel fabulous, even pizza! Seriously! Here's where you can find my pizza recipe that you will absolutely fall in love with:

    Can't wait to hear what you think!

  2. Cro made pizza last night and I just remember thinking that I NEED to make a cauliflower crust pizza soon. Cooking is such a big deal for me though… I'm not so good at it. But I WANT to make a low carb pizza so I can enjoy it too. :)

  3. Making a cauliflower pizza crust sounds really hard. I think even a professional chef would have a hard time making it come out right. : ) I came up with a low carb pizza that's 50 times easier and so delicious! When I first started cooking I felt the same way as was intimidating and I wasn't very good at it. That's why I make sure my recipes are easy to understand and fail-proof! You're definitely a better cook than you think... It's just a matter of finding the right recipes. Try the pizza recipe on this site and you'll see what I mean:

  4. I love cauli pizza, Oct!

    Your recipe looks great, too, Cat! Thanks for sharing!
